For billions and billions of manga enthusiasts and anime fans around the globe, the One Piece series is still on their Saturday to-do list.
Last weekend, we had not a single but 2 Luffy-shaped voids in our calendar, with news confirming that both the source manga and the animated version had been delayed – sadly, the anime will not continue this weekend either.
So, why is the upcoming One Piece series being postponed again, and when will episode 1054 be released worldwide?
One Piece Ep 1054: Release Date and Time
One Piece Episode 1054 has been delayed in Japan, so the anime will not air its newest episode globally this Saturday, as many viewers may have anticipated.
The impending postponement is due to Television coverage of the Tokyo and Nagoya races, which are slated for airing in the show periods usually filled by the famous anime series; rather than rescheduling the One Piece anime, the choice was taken to delay the telecast. The main One Piece, Anime Twitter website has verified that chapter 1054 will now air on Sunday, March 19.
One Piece: Overview
Gol D. Roger has been renowned as the “Pirate King,” the most powerful and notorious person ever traveling the Grand Line. The World Government’s arrest and killing of Roger caused a global upheaval. However, his final remarks before dying disclosed the presence of the world’s greatest treasure, One Piece. This discovery ushered in the Great Age of Pirates, with men dreaming of discovering One Piece, which promises an infinite amount of wealth and renown, and possibly the apex of triumph and the title of Pirate King.
Meet Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old kid who defies the traditional description of a pirate. Rather than the typical image of an evil, callous, toothless pirate ransacking towns for amusement, Luffy’s motivation for being a pirate is a pure wonder: the prospect of a thrilling adventure that brings him to fascinating people and, eventually, the promised wealth.
Following his boyhood idol’s path, Luffy and his company journey across the Grand Line, encountering wild adventures, unraveling dark secrets, and fighting formidable foes, all in pursuit of the most prized of all fortunes—One Piece.
One Piece Ep1053 Recap
Mononosuke attempted to move Onigashima using Flame Clods as intended, but his clods seemed weakened and soon disappeared. Yamato had gone to save Onagashima. Then, he ascended the Skull Dome to avoid a detonation caused by the bombs on the island if Onigashima descended on the Flower Capital.
The action then moved inside the fortress to Lucci and Guernica, who discussed Mononosuke’s monster form and the ongoing fight. Lucci informed him of the World Government’s plans to seize the Wano capital if Kaido failed. He also stated that reinforcement was coming and that they needed to apprehend Nico Robin. The following scene shows Kaido’s supporters attempting to abduct Robin while Brook tries to defend her.
Meanwhile, Sanji and Queen’s fight heated up, and Sanji used Dieu Jambe against him. Queen separated his head and tail from his primary frame, trapping Sanji. Unless he mistakenly launched his rockets on himself, the Queen squashed Sanji and shattered his bones.
Even though his bones were fractured, Sanji was unharmed by the assault. The monarch then used his blade to behead Sanji, but his sword burst after striking his neck, while Sanji only felt minor discomfort in his neck. Nevertheless, Sanji began to notice that his body was behaving similarly to his sibling’s, and he became concerned because he didn’t want to follow in his footsteps of him.
